Department of Computer Science & Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DCS&E) was established in spring 2014 with the aim to impart quality education to its students. The Department not only emphasizes on technical and practical skills of the students but also endeavors to enhance their sense of responsibility towards humanity. The DCS&E has employed highly qualified, most experienced, researchfocused and professionally sound faculty for its different academic programs. Dedicated, spacious and well-equipped laboratories have been established for providing state-of-the-art research, development, teaching and learning facilities. The curriculum of each program meets requirements of the industry and is inline with the criteria set by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, Pakistan Engineering Council and National Computing Education Accreditation Council.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) program at HITEC University has been designed to produce professionals having sound computing knowledge, complex problem solving capabilities, critical thinking and analytical skills. The curriculum and the laboratory work has been designed and integrated in such a way that our graduates get edge over their competitors for securing better positions in the industry, academia and research within the country and abroad. After completing the BSCS program, our students will have a thorough understanding of the latest technical, theoretical and practical aspects of the program area. Our BSCS program encompasses all the areas required by the industry.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCE) program has been designed to prepare computer engineers who are fully capable of effectively applying emerging computer engineering knowledge to meet future challenges of the world. The students are trained to understand modern technologies, design concepts & methodologies, and develop products or processes by applying their professional knowledge of mathematics, computing, and engineering. Our graduate computer engineers will play pivotal role as a multidisciplinary team member in the national and international market in connection with automation, design, research and development. Our professionally skilled and well-groomed computer engineers will be capable of contributing to the society by applying skills and abilities acquired during the study of BSCE.

In Fall 2014, the Department also started MS Computer Science with the aim to broaden the knowledge of computing and bridge the gap between graduate level knowledge and the cutting-edge research methodologies and technologies. The MS program is designed to enable students to learn advanced knowledge in the domain of computer science by taking specialized courses to enhance their expertise in the latest areas. The department is also offering MS in Computer Engineering with effect from Fall 2016 keeping in view ever increasing demands of the industry, availability of the qualified faculty and the required supporting facilities and resources. The curriculum has been designed to cover advanced technologies and the cutting-edge computer engineering areas in order to make it more attractive for the students.

In Fall 2016, the DCS&E is starting PhD in computer science. It is a full time study program to facilitate the students to engage themselves in the advanced study and research. PhD scholars will be capable
of integrating their professional education and experience to solve practical complex problems through innovative approaches.

Besides academics, we also focus on personality development and character building of our students by facilitating them to get involved in extracurricular activities within and outside the HITEC University. We strongly hope that our students will become innovators and leaders with regards to their contribution as per aspirations of the nation. We look forward to see you in our department where you can study to build an exciting career in one of the most promising academic programs of this era.
